How to make perfect ceviche

ceviche.jpg

While the weather isn't fully decided on what season we're currently in, the fact is, it's summer and we should all start eating appropriately. This means no more chunky soups and stews and much more fresh fish.

As you're all totally aware, it's National Ceviche Day on June 28th and to celebrate, we have a recipe to get you in the mood for the warmer weather. It comes from restaurateur and author Martin Morales, who owns the excellent Peruvian restuarnt Andina, located in Shoreditch.

Give it a go.

Andina Ceviche - serves 4

Fresh root ginger

1 clove of garlic, chopped

4 sprigs of coriander, roughly chopped
